Working with us


Please note that applications for legal assistant posts in 2024 are now closed. The next recruitment campaign will take place early in 2025 and details of the posts available will be added to this page at that time.


Equal Opportunities

The Scottish Law Commission and Scottish Government are committed to equality of opportunity of employment for all, on the basis of ability, qualifications and fitness for work. Applications are invited from all those who are, or expect to be qualified and eligible irrespective of race, age, gender, marital status, disability, religion or belief or sexual orientation.

The Commission will interview applicants who have a disability within the meaning of the Equality Act 2010, who meet the minimum criteria for appointment and who claim a guaranteed interview.

The Commission's Equality and Diversity Policy is reviewed on a regular basis.

In terms of the Race Relations Act 1976 we are required to undertake the ethnic monitoring of staff we employ directly and to publish the results. This duty only applies in respect of our legal assistants whom we recruit directly on fixed term contracts. The results of the monitoring for legal assistants appointed in August 2023 are available.
